A 105-year-old virgin has revealed her secret to long life — celibacy.
Clara Meadmore, who celebrated her birthday with a drop of wine at the Perran Bay nursing home in Cornwall, England, said she imagined there was "a lot of hassle" involved in having sex, Agence France-Presse reported Friday.
"People have asked me whether I am a homosexual and the answer is no," she told AFP.
"I have just never been interested in sex," added Meadmore, who received a birthday card from Queen Elizabeth II.
Meadmore was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1903. She lived in Canada and New Zealand as a child, and served in the Egypt army during World War II. She returned to Britain in her 20s and moved to Cornwall 40 years ago.
